It’s pretty simple.
- Locate pack of bright silvers.
- Huck floating line and popper out into the middle of ’em.
- Strip abruptly, making the popping, v-waking, chugging action as desired.
- Get ready to watch the show.
Silvers down near the ocean are really aggressive critters – here poppers work well and get the heart rate up! Sometimes fish explode on the fly. Sometime they roll on it. Sometimes you can watch a wake chase your fly for 20 yards until finally a kype pokes up out of the water and slowly inhales…
The number of silvers that return to our rivers at Alaska West is pretty remarkable; the fact that they like eating poppers makes us very happy anglers.
